1997 SL1
Default Theft Deterrent Cd Player

I was visiting the local salvage yard and he had a different saturn so I looked inside and saw a cd player. I didn't look to see what model it was but it had the same dash configuration. I think it is newer than mine because it had the fake reflector light across the trunk. But what I was wanting to know is if all the cd players are locked down with the code or just some of them, and if it will fit my factory cassette opening? He said he would take $30 for it so I'm thinking of going back Monday morning b/c this thing probably wont be in there very long.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

That fake reflector across the trunk means that it was an SL2.

The 95-99 Saturn CD/radio is a Theft Deterrent system. Yes it will replace your factory system if it is a 95-99 system. You use to be able to call a number an get it unlocked, but do not know if it still works. Look in the How-To Library. Also a Saturn dealer can unlock it for you, sometimes they charge you, sometime they will do it for free.

Default Re: Theft Deterrent Cd Player

The theft lock is only set if the previous owner actually took the time to set it - very few Saturn owners ever even bother.

My Saturn dealership reset a locked CD player for me at no charge.

Okay I got the cd player, installed it and the previous owner didn't put a code in it, but the cd part of it didn't work. It took the disk in but wouldn't turn it so going back for a refund.
